Goggle success and giggles
Hezekiah didn't mind the cold at all. Even during the Wai swim lessons, when it was really cold, he was the one that stayed in the pool the longest. It sounds like one day he ended up the only one left in his group having his lesson. The others were all out and trying to warm up.
He is doing so well with his confidence in the water. He was excited about showing me how he can jump into the deep end.
He also showed me how he goes backwards. He has a nice strong kick and keeps showing me how he keeps his feet in the water. :-)
And in no time she was off. She decided she wanted to swim the length of the pool. It was great that she stayed close to the side. Once Ruth was out of her depth at least we were right there and able to grab her if she had a seizure.
Nice to get a video of Anastasia laughing. It's always tricky as she still tends to just stop everything when the phone comes out to take a photo or video.
Playing peek-a-boo with Asher. Asher does so love this, so it was nice to get her playing it with Anastasia too.
Rachel is planning an ice skating trip for her birthday and wants to practice on rollerblades a bit before she goes. Unfortunately the ones we were able to lend were just too small. They fit Ruth though, so she has been enjoying using them a bit.
Asher only had a half day today and spent a couple of hours after lunch at home with Lynda so that I could attend her IEP at school (Individual Education Plan). We had a great meeting and it was good to get so many people from her team together to discuss things. I am so very thankful for all the lovely ladies that are involved in helping Asher with her education. We feel so very blessed.
Rachel headed to town early this morning for an Event Management Course (part of her high school NCEA levels). It's run from Monday to Wednesday, so she stayed with people in town to save of travel (money and time). She had a great time and did really well.
This afternoon Ruth was playing "hide and go seek" with Asher. It was sweet to see Asher go to the previous spot each time. At first she didn't even notice Ruth in there. It was almost as if seeing her leg wasn't enough.
Asher had a seizure at 8:30 this evening. Brendon spotted it on the monitor just as it started - so it was good we could be with her through it. She has had a 12 day break and so it felt so strange to deal with a seizure again and the restlessness afterwards. It took a while to get her settled but she then had a good night's sleep.
We headed to bible study again this evening and Asher managed to fall asleep in the room with us. So sweet. And I'm so glad we could attend.
